Liposuction for Fat Stem Cells

Liposuction has more benefits than losing a few inches…. Learn how storing your fat stem cells may help fight future disease.

For years the term “stem cell” has been used in the medical profession, seen in the news, and lately, it is showing up in our social media feeds. So what is a stem cell anyway? A stem cell is a type of cell than can become many other cell types, they support your immune system, coordinate healing and build healthy tissue. The medical possibilities they offer is vast. Currently there are over 700 clinical trials using these cells to treat age related disease and even aging itself.

But there is a problem. As you age you lose these cells and the ones that remain become damaged and less effective. At our practice, we solve this problem by storing your stem cells for you NOW in their youngest and best possible state. By storing your stem cells today, you are stopping the clock on a very important component of your biology. In fact, Dr. Schenden recently banked his own cells.

In the aesthetic world liposuction has been performed for years to contour the body and remove unwanted fat. This fat is then discarded. What many people don’t realize is that there are copious amounts of stem cells in fat. The benefits of liposuction can be more than losing a few unwanted inches. These cells can be processed and reintroduced into the body as a natural filler to plump certain areas with the Fat Grafting technique and Dr. Schenden can collect this fat and isolate the stem cells for cryopreservation. Storing these cells is simple and could be the greatest decision you make for your future health.


Dr. Schenden performs both Bone Marrow and Liposuction Fat Stem Cell Aspiration for storage. Call our office located in Troy, Michigan today to set up your consultation 248-524-0620 or contact our partner company Forever Labs at foreverlabs.com for more information on stem cell storage.

 

Exciting New Procedure (Stem Cell Aspiration and Banking)

Posted January 12th, 2017 by Dr. Schenden and filed in Uncategorized

Dr. Michael J. Schenden has partnered with Forever Labs™ to be the first plastic surgeon in the Nation to offer this procedure. The goals of both organizations are simple. We endeavor to put you in the driver seat for your own health. Of course, for the best overall health and longevity, there is no substitute for diet and exercise. But is there more that can be done? Yes, we are dedicated to the idea that modern science has given us a unique opportunity to maintain a piece of our youthful selves well into the future. We sit at an inflection point for health and wellness that we predict will change some of the ways in which people think about their own health.

As you may have guessed, we are talking about stem cells, specifically, those from your bone marrow. Bone marrow stem cells contribute to the health of a myriad of systems in the body. They help make your blood, rebuild connective tissue, and create a good deal of your immune system. More and more, we are seeing stem cells employed in clinical practice for things such as joint healing and cosmetic procedures for skin. The downside is that these treatments rely on using your stem cells as they currently exist.

Unfortunately, as we age we tend to lose our stem cells. The good news is that when you’re relatively young and healthy, your stem cells have the remarkable ability to replenish themselves. Storing the young cells today makes sense. This procedure simply takes your youthful stem cells and stores them for future use to fight age related disease or future rejuvenation therapies.  Our mission is to let everyone access their own stem cells as late in life as they wish, and these cells will be as fresh as the day they were stored. Each year, more treatments that are based on stem cell therapy become available. It is our contention that there is no better donor than your younger, healthier self, and there is no better time than today.

This procedure will be offered to all surgery patients and is a simple add on procedure or can be completed as a standalone procedure that takes only 30 minutes—and you are able to walk out within an hour.
